Someday, hopefully soon, when Missouri Baptist University students, faculty and staff members are back on campus there will be a new club to greet them, and it all hovers around … bees.

Members of the Missouri Baptist Bee Hive Club gather around guest speaker Faith Francisco as she speaks near the bees in the Quad. The club meets every Thursday afternoon at 4:30 p.m.
As students returned to Missouri Baptist University this fall, they arrived with plenty to do, from sports practices to disc golf to Chapel and even a visit with the Stanley Cup. Today’s photo gallery, by MBU Timeline photojournalists, captures many of the sights around campus and around St. Louis.

Guitarist Katelynn Freese leads students in worship after completing a recent hour-long Sunrise Stretch class on the Quad. Students woke up early for the class, which met outside that morning, to take advantage of cool morning temperatures.
On a crisp clear day earlier this fall the new president of Missouri Baptist University was sworn in, but attention was deflected toward a day of service as hundreds of students, faculty and staff members assembled food packages to be shipped to families in Haiti, and bows were tied on Teddy bears to be delivered to children at area hospitals.

Lindsey Peters, MBU student and founder of her own non-profit outreach, called Sharing Smiles, is in fact all smiles as she stands with a table full of Teddy bears that will be delivered to children at area hospitals. MBU students, faculty and staff members gathered at the Perk to help Peters tie bows on the stuffed bears as part of the university’s Day of Service this fall.
